The state’s stifling hard cap law imposed by the state Legislature and rising health care costs across the nation are making it increasingly difficult for Michigan school employees to afford their health insurance premiums. As a result, many cash-strapped teachers, education support professionals and higher education employees are looking to MESSA for less-expensive options.

We’ve heard you and we’ve taken action. MESSA’s staff, leaders and board have worked quickly and tirelessly over the past year to develop a menu of new plans and riders designed to give your UniServ director, association leaders and bargainers more options that will keep more money in your paycheck.

We’ve been here for Michigan school employees for over 50 years, and we are committed to being here for you and your family in the years ahead.

With our new plan options, your group can keep the large doctor network, excellent coverage and legendary personal service you love from MESSA, all while saving a considerable amount in premiums.

We’re confident you and your leadership will find a MESSA plan that works for you and your colleagues — and your budgets.
